An ďI Donít WannaĒ Blog for the start of BLC 23

Thursday, September 05, 2013

I need to lose at least 12 pounds. Fifteen would be better. Thatís a pound to a pound and a quarter a week. Yes, itís manageable and doable. But Iíve been saying that for the better part of a year and it has yet to happen. Will this be the magic time I actually get there?

Iím also shooting for 9,000 yards a week in the pool. That will be easier than the weight loss.

Yeah, I REALLY donít wanna. But here they are.

What? Did you think you were getting swimsuit pics? Dream on emoticon

We wonít discuss numbers. Iíll just say that since June I gained everywhere except my upper arm (stayed the same) and my thigh (lost a half inch). Thatís swimming for you.

I have a visitor to my back porch. I wonder what his measurements are? Heís certainly in better shape than me.

    Ooooo, you joined a challenge? You go, girl! Was gonna drop by to let you know I will be offline for a long time, am canceling my net come the end of this coming week. I'll drop you an email before then to fill you in. LOL Will stop by Mandy's to use her puter here and there just to check in with people, probably.

    OK...Let's do Doc gave me until January 15 to lose 15 lbs...She was not happy with the weight I've put back on, and let me know in no uncertain terms that she would kick my jello-like butt if I don't start exercising again...getting back into the swing of exercising seems to be my major problem. Actually, it's laziness, not the exercising....I know we can do this...on your mark, get set GO!!!!!!!!
